The Eyes of the Overworld
by Jack Vance

The Eyes of the Overworld's matter-of-fact narration is easy to follow and the adventures of our "hero" are engaging. Cugel may look out for himself first and foremost, but his knack for getting himself into one ridiculous predicament after another is both endearing, laughable, and, most importantly, kept me turning the pages.

The Dying Earth
by Jack Vance

Tales of the Dying Earth takes place in a future so far advanced that technology has become more akin to magic. This compilation spans four separate tomes and is written in the classic, no nonsense style as befitting a grandmaster of science fiction. The book is entertaining nonetheless, and should be on every serious reader's list.
